Longer story short, in the wallet I found the business card of this young man's dad, I called him, he called his son (its days like this that technology is so wonderful ... cell phones!) who returned to where I was waiting. I gave him the wallet which he immediately opened, pulled out the $20 bill that was in there and handed it to me, which, of course, I refused. He said "you saved my life" (a little more dramatic then needed to be but I certainly understood his relief ... had heard the same from my son).
And why am I telling you this? Because, people are good, they really are. My son never knew who picked up his wallet and turned it in. But whoever you are, we thank you, more then you can know. And this young man yesterday, he's 16 years old, and without a moment's hesitation he offered all that he had when he gave the $20 from his wallet. I was so touched by his offering.
Ya know, sometimes it seems that there is awful stuff going on all around, and yes there is, but there's lot of good out there too. In this week of Thanksgiving, I am thankful to be able to look around and see the good.
All things good to your day.
